Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's office is now taking applications for its 2008-2009 Community Planning Fellowship. The program, open to second-year graduate students in planning, intends to engage planning students in public service and to provide practical educational experience. Part of the Fellowship involves attending a planning seminar, which meets at least four times per semester. FHL's Robert Hammond was a guest speaker at this year's spring seminar.
